Knit Picks

I swear the people that wrote the new Blogger drafting tool had no idea how the old one really worked. So many features I relied on are now gone. Thanks for the "upgrade"

Last weekend I received my latest order from Knit Picks. I should stay away from their website because there are so many good things. 
This small box was packed with delightful yarn. 
Stroll Tweed was on sale and I have a soft spot for sales. This yarn is as soft as the rest of the Stroll line and perfect for socks, mittens, and gloves. 
Then there was the 10-ball set of 2020 Summer Felici. I love these self-striping yarns. They are just so much fun if you like self-striping yarns. My monster socks are made mostly with this yarn (sometimes a stripe or two of other yarns will find their way in). It is soft and machine washable. I can't wait to pair up some of these and get cranking.

  1. I don't knit or crochet but the colors of these yarns are so lovely. I just got some thread and now I am thinking I should have looked at the variegated threads.
